Vikram Solar completed a total of two projects. The first system, totaling 1.056 MW, comprises 3,300 modules, which have been installed across seven of Century Plyboards’ factory sheds, and three evacuation points. Overall, they cover an area of 11,000 square meters.
The second, a 405 kW system, was installed at the company’s Chirai Moti unit, near the Kandla Port in Gujarat. Covering an area of 450 square meters, it is generating enough electricity to power the entire factory, says Vikram Solar.
“We are continously working towards setting rooftop power plants in a timeline of 1 to 3 months with precision engineering that maximises roof space and meets power demands at least cost,” says Neha Agrawal – Head- Corporate Strategy & Rooftop Busines in a statement released.
This March, Vikram completed its first rooftop solar project in the Indian defence sector when it installed a 350 KW system at Gun and Shell Factory (GSF) in Cossipore, Kolkata.
A total of 1,130 modules were installed across an area of 4,180 square meters, in order to power five different buildings.
At the time, Agrawal said that Vikram has an over 60 MW rooftop solar portfolio, comprising both commissioned systems and projects under execution.
